some of your thoughts around healthcare cost overall. question today, rising healthcare costs accumulating with fiscal liabilities represent significant challenge. >> our obligations for providing quality and affordable health care for our city employees without jeopardizing the city's fiscal solvency is a priority of mine in the challenge that we have to take together. this year will spend 574 million dollars for the health care of our current employees retirees and dependents, about seven point eight percent of our city spending. in addition to annual bending for healthcare we have an equally significant issue on the horizon. the unfunded cost of paying for healthcare for all current employees once they retire. last november 2012 the city assessed our retiree health-care obligations an estimated the unfunded liability to be 4.4 billion dollars. over the past several years we have taking a number of important steps to address the structural budget issues associated with employee benefits in healthcare. in 2008 the city passed proposition c, charter amendment that lengthen t

with dental care, mental health, and other healthcare issues, the groups that need healthcare the most are the least likely to receive it. the good news is 11 months from now we will be providing health insurance to dirty million more americans are the affordable care act. -- dirty million more americans are the affordable care act. we do not know how we will provide primary health care to those americans who will now have health insurance. let me rattle off some statistics that should be of concern to the congress and to all americans. not widely known, approximately 45,000 people every single year die in the united states of america because they do not have health insurance and they do not get to a dr. in time. 45,000 americans. according to the health resources and service administration, we need 16,000 primary care practitioners to meet the need that exists today with a ratio of one provider to 2000 patients. over 52,000 our merry care physicians will be needed by 2025 -- primary care physicians will be needed by 2025. over half of patient visits are for primary care. only 7% of th
the debate we will have over healthcare in the coming legislative session, i believe we all agree that we want and need a healthier south carolina. and no one can deny that this administration, working with legislators like representative murrell smith and senator thomas alexander has made health a priority. we started 2011 with the medicaid budget out of balance and we brought it under control. we started with one of the lowest rates of insured children in the country and now south carolina is recognized for adopting leading edge strategies to reach more children. we started with mental health and addictive disorder programs, hobbled by cuts and together we've reinvested in both. we started with a medicaid program that required little accountability for quality or cost and we've demanded better value. these are success we should celebrate. but let us ask a simple question. are taxpayers getting the most health for the money they spend on healthcare? my answer is no. not by a long shot. we spend more money for health services per person than any nation on earth. year after year, we devote
healthcare, you have education. the key is, people don't know what that means. do i need to be a nurse, do i need to be a doctor, do i need to be a teacher? but the answer really is, if you are in customer service in healthcare, can you do data analysis in healthcare? can you do technology for the software programs that are in healthcare? a lot of it is the population going out and getting retrained in order to take the jobs that are needed. > so technology, that mantra is you really have to be training yourself for the jobs of the day. they're not around anymore, the kind of jobs that used to be. > > it's a different world. everything is different, right? styles change, jobs change. the problem is, if you have been doing the same thing for 20 years, 15 years, 30 years, and you're unemployed, the odds are you probably weren't that good at it to begin with. > tell me about temporary workers, temp-to-full-time. what about contractors? > > temping contracting is really bigger than it's been in the past five, six, seven years. companies are putting their foot in the water. they need people to do
us billions in medical care. where is this headed? government pays for the healthcare, they can decide who lives or dies based on what behavior they dislike. if you can't be penalized to lose weight, to quote the piece why not just let the health sinners die? annual healthcare cost are roughly $96 billion for smokers and $147 billion for the obese, the government says. that is the big point. the government says. when everyone else pays for your care withholding care is their call. your death improves the bottom line. one way time to prove the care, resources is eliminate the bioethicist. it never met one and i would like to keep that it way. i'm sure you feel the same. invite them to camp david. i'm sure the president could use a few running targets. we'll tell them it's the fox news company picnic. danas for you look at raxing of care in the u.k. it's inevitable someone will get a new hip or who doesn't. >> dana: where did you get that line? guest from you. you said ask me that question. >> dana: i said add it to the monologue because it's brilliant point. there is a limited am
so far. >> we talked about the healthcare panel that was created. we will figure out how to get around the doctor's shortage and so on and obama care and other reasons as well. the council was supposed to keep us honest and make sure the president listens to the recommendation and they were with obama care. if they never get the support they never meet and wind up defunct. >> a lot of what inner circles like, counselor you have not been gone from washington, d.c. for so long you don't know why people put these commissions together put heat off when they are weak like the president's healthcare law or in this case the job situation, or just look busy. in washington we have a commission equals we are not going to do anything on this. you hear the phrase blue ribbon commission. >> they were looking into it. as far as solutions go that or the jobs crisis we will see. chris, thanks. >>> on the same days we learn about the demise of the job's council we are getting a few key economic reports first jobless claims. the number of americans filing for unemployment claims went up sharply l
's healthcare law, and the list is long. they are charging customers extra, but not giving all that extra money to the employees who it's supposed to go to. >> reporter: when you dine out in san francisco, you pay a little extra to help fund the workers healthcare, but the city attorney says dozens of restaurants aren't using all that money for their employees. some people find it hard to swallow. >> i think it's terrible. as it is, the waiters and staff are living off tips and don't normally get full benefits. >> they can stop charging 4.5% on my bill if it's not going to the right place. >> reporter: san francisco city attorney is telling 50 restaurants to clean up their act in three months. >> by doing so, they can avoid litigation by my office for consumer fraud. >> reporter: we don't know which of the city's thousands of restaurants are under investigation, but we've obtained a list of 100 who reported they have taken far more money than they have paid out in employee health costs. in 2011, chef michael minas' group collected more than half million
lines about climate change and mandates and healthcare. i didn't see any of the pamphlets. maybe it was some sort of a chip activated as soon as you walked through security. it was incredible. no one was able to think their own thoughts or articulate something original. that was why it was boring. >> i am glad i wasn't there. since he plans to stop climate change and provide more health insurance yet make no cuts to medicare or social security or much of anything, where is the money going to come from. the crowd didn't see a problem with that. >> he's a big spending president how does he curtail that. >> he's not the spending president. bush spent so much mown nobody said anything. >> he's not? >> no, i don't think so. >> have you looked at the -- >> i would like to differ with you on that. >> you can like to differ but it's not true. >> it is true when you look at how much -- if you look at how much president bush spends it is more than what obama spends. >> it took 8 years to get the united states where it is now it will take another 8 years to get it back. >> we can stop doing
reliable partners organized labor is not happy with some parts of the healthcare overhaul. chief national correspondent jim angle tells us why. >> as obama care gets closer to implementation, supporters are finding unanticipated problems. >> obamacare was put together by special interest. there was nobody making sure all the parts fit. now we are finding all kind of loopholes and problems. >> now some unions are finding they will be hurt, not helped by the law. contrary to predictions. >> the affordable care aband even other efforts happening in the private sector have the potential to bring down costs. >> obamacare will force them to buy expensive coverage driving up the cost. competing firms with fewer than 50 workers are not required to provide insurance and they will have lower operating cost and the workers get general subsidy to buy coverage. >> unions will pay more for the members and they will compete against people, get generous subsidies from the federal government. they don't like that. >> another oddity in the bill is many poor people are not covered. >> the law as drafted ant
in the healthcare plan. instead insurers will be required to provide coverage, including standard birth control and items like the morning after pill. the white house says the modifications meet president obama's overarching goals. >> we had to ensure the women have access to preventative services like contraception. the policy also respects religious beliefs. >> catholic league bill donahue held the announcement as a sign of good will toward the catholic community. because the private sector firms with religious objections are not covered by the proposal and many insurance firms are apt to shift the absorbed cost back to employers anyway, even if they are not for profit, catholic schools, charity or hospitals, all other groups dismissed the latest h.h.s. move as window dressing. >> religious charities like catholic charities are not off the hook today. on the contrary, they are forced to contract with a third party to still provide objectionable products like abortion inducing drugs for employees. today's accommodation is another version of the old accounting gimmick. >> the administration sai

that stems from the healthcare law and basically says that supermarkets have tollable all kinds of foods. they are get in big trouble if they don't. basically something that is unpackaged. from a bakery or the favorite cupcakes. the salad and food bars and hot bars out there. basically you have to label everything or what happens. >> if you don't label it supermarkets face thousands of dollars worth of fines and executives at supermarkets could be put in federal jails. >> shannon: you can go to jail if you don't label the foods correctly under the federal regulation? >> that is absolutely right. a sweeping regulation that affects thousands items in the supermarket. because of this we could see a number of items going away. i can guarantee that you that shoppers will see higher prices at the register. >> shannon: how does this work essentially? stems from the healthcare law but my understanding is this comes from the food and drug administration which has admitted that this didn't necessarily extend to supermarkets and grocery stores but they decided they are going to. >> that is absolute
rhetoric, about universal healthcare, and who should get that... should that be extended to the entire population? i think a good place to start is with the children. my god, we should be trying to take care of our children. you know, the issues about adults are very complex, and, you know-- many adults-- the reasons they're unhealthy are because of things they do themselves or do to themselves. but kids are incredibly vulnerable, and i would think it would have to be a priority of ours to try and protect and ensure their health. marc shiffman: there are too many people out there... who are senior citizens-- fixed low income. medicare is their only insurance, and as they get older, as they get sicker, as they need more medications, they are having to make difficult choices. - hi. how are you doing today? - hello, mrs. phillips. - how are you? - it's good to see you. my social worker spends some time almost every day calling up drug companies, filling out forms to get special dispensations for medications. people break pills in half to stretch them, or they just go without because they'
